IMO indicates the applicable standard for marine foams to be used in fighting fires on marine vessels.
Fires are always dangerous but additional difficulties are encountered with shipboard fires due to compact spaces, intense heat in engine rooms and highly flammable materials/fuels. Even small fires are extremely dangerous given the close quarters. VS Focum have tested their marine foams against all these issues to ensure that the excellent extinguishment capabilities are retained.
